Meet White Swan (WA) high school running back Tony Picard. He’s about to become pretty famous because he’s a 6’4, 400 pound running back. I’m not kidding.

According to the Indian Country Today Network, Picard, a senior, is a team captain and has talked to a couple colleges about taking his game to the next level. White Swan coach Andrew Bush took Picard off the line to handle some real offensive duties.

Picard started out as a lineman, and still plays defensive nose tackle, but he was faster than one expected. Bush says this became evident at a football camp a couple of years ago. During time away from football, they would sometimes play a game of basketball.

“He was so agile and making shots from way out there,” Bush recalls. “I said ‘I’ve got to use this somehow.’”

But is he seeing much action?

“I kind of make a path for the smaller guys to score and serve as a decoy,” Picard says. Despite being a decoy, he has been running for about 80-120 yards per game, and usually scores a touchdown or two.

According to the Northwest Prep report, Picard “is part Umatilla-Nez Perce Indian and says he has some Sioux Indian blood too.” His nickname: Big Tone.
